Justin Mcneley, [MyPetjawa] His name was Justin McNeley. Regardless of his uniform displayed in ISAF image, it turns out that he was a sailor in all cases. He was a Petty Officer 2nd Class in the Navy and serving on a reconstruction team. Here is a photo stream of McNeley at a party thrown in his honor by the Patriot Riders shortly before his deployment last year. If it does not move you to tears, then you must submit your patriotism card. The picture above is from the stream.
Since his body was not found near the vehicle he was driving when he disappeared, we can assume that the Taliban took him alive.
It is possible that he was seriously injured when he was taken hostage and that he died of those wounds later. Or is it possible that the Taliban had only one hostage and that they killed him.
Not one willing to give benefit of doubt, the Taliban, I’m going with him murdered.
May God bless his family and comfort them in their time of distress. And he can punish those men who are fighting our troops in an attempt to create an Islamofascist regime.
My only hope is that he could take part of the Taliban before he was killed. Rest in peace Justin McNeley. Rest in peace.
We still do not know the identity of the second sailor captured by the Taliban. A guest commenter in our previous thread about him as a good point that the reason we have not seen proof of life photo or a hostage video is that it is likely that the Taliban trying to transport him to a safer place, probably in Pakistan, and that they are still on the move.
God speed fighters that are, even as I write this, the search for our missing sailor. If anyone knows his name, please email me.
UPDATE: Not sure which one is McNeley and what is the missing soldier. The picture below was ID’d in an MSM article McNeley, but I said something else by someone else. Kind of hard to say given McNeley’s mustache in all photos of him, but I think the pic above looks more like McNeley and image below is that the missing sailor. Correct me if I am wrong.
